Rams RB Isaiah Pead suspended one game

Rams running back Isaiah Pead did not enjoy his rookie season.

His second NFL campaign won’t be starting smoothly, either.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Pead will serve a one-game suspension at the start of the regular season for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy.

The nature of the violation is unclear.

A second-round pick of the Rams in 2012, Pead is regarded as one of the contenders for carries that once went to Steven Jackson, who signed with Atlanta in the offseason. However, he’s not going to get a chance to show what he can do in the season opener vs. Arizona.

    “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?”

    That’s the fourth draft pick from the Rams class of 2012 to be suspended.

    Jenkins and Givens last year, now Watkins and Pead this year.

    one game might not seem like much but when it’s against a division opponent? incredibly dumb.

    He was awesome at UC – this also means his suspension is for weed. GO BEARCATS!

    He is a twig who wasn’t that good in college. How this guy was a top 50 pick is beyond me.

    He Pead into a cup.

    What a bum, this guy will be out of the league in two years.

    “Oh my God , the Rams have a horrible PED problem ! All their players are criminals !”

    Oh , sorry – that’s a Niner fan post . .

    Wasn’t that good in college? Were you watching another team or something? This kid was a stud in college. Ignorance must be bliss.

    Isiaih Peed PEDs.

  11. anotherfavrepick says: May 31, 2013 4:31 PM

    Even with the spelling of “Pead”, I had to read the headline twice.

    Although, I suppose grammatically it would’ve read “Rams RB Isaiah Peed; suspended one game”

  12. matthewcarlson1 says: May 31, 2013 4:31 PM

    He Pead that one down his leg.

  13. ColtsWinColtsWin!! says: May 31, 2013 4:32 PM

    I bet he is Pead!!!

  14. patrickowns says: May 31, 2013 4:40 PM

    He must have Pead dirty.

  15. icdogg says: May 31, 2013 4:43 PM

    His name is a complete sentence, if you ignore spelling that is.

    Seahawks wannabe

  17. jacobstrube says: May 31, 2013 4:49 PM

    Come on guys this is the NFL its not a secret alot of players take peds, I mean look at’em.. this shouldn’t really change your opinion of anyone.

  18. beavertonsteve says: May 31, 2013 4:52 PM

    What is up with the single game suspensions (Watkins as well)? Are these for missed tests? From previous suspensions it seems like we don’t hear about these until it is multiple violations and that normally brings a four game suspension.

  19. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: May 31, 2013 4:53 PM

    From now on, PED will be spelled PEAD.

  20. tobis81 says: May 31, 2013 5:03 PM

    Ummm, what’s with the 1 game suspension?????? Bruce Irvin got a 4 game suspension for is first violation. That’s BS if you ask me. Hope the Hawks complain to the league. BTW, it’s hilarious to see a Rams player get caught for PEDs being as I had to listen to all the loser Ram trolls on NFL. Com War Rooms rant about it for the past 3 weeks, ROLMFAO… Noodles, you toolbag, hahaha!!!

  21. theclaim says: May 31, 2013 5:32 PM

    Shouldn’t have Pead in the cup when asked. SHOULD have used the Dick Sherman method. Pee on hands THEN claim the collection process is corrupted by foreign substances introduced to the specimen!

  22. trollingforjustice says: May 31, 2013 5:37 PM

    so who does this make as the number 1 rb for them?

  23. garyhd01 says: May 31, 2013 6:02 PM

    to those that paid attention this isn’t news but for the rest including the seahawk fan Irvin got 4 games for PEDs rok Watkins and isiah pead both got one game for substance abuse obviously not a PED and the givens and Jenkins situation was not a suspension they were out late missed bed check and were kept out of 1 game by coach fisher not suspended. my guess is rok and pead probably shared a joint

  24. seatownballers says: May 31, 2013 6:05 PM

    One game people. Peds gets a 4 game suspension. This is likely multiple positives for weed

  25. cheapglazers says: May 31, 2013 6:12 PM

    Is he Lawrence Phillips or Trung Canidate?

  26. stlunatik says: May 31, 2013 6:24 PM

    got that kush Isaiah…

  27. pacodawg says: May 31, 2013 6:29 PM

    I am sure it wasn’t his fault

  28. pop562 says: May 31, 2013 6:40 PM

    People need to read the article with more comprehension. He didn’t get suspended for PED’s…he’s getting suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy…most likely its something like weed which is why it’s only a 1 day suspension. Unless you’re the seadderall seahawks it involves PED’s (performance enhancing drugs). I’m not sure weed can give you a competitive edge in the NFL.

    Darn. I live in St. Louis, and I wanted to make T-Shirts that say “You got Pead on”

  30. seahonky says: Jun 1, 2013 1:49 AM

    Do all of the Rams smoke weed? The head coach needs to control his players. What are they doing? Passing out joints like candy?

  31. glock4429 says: Jun 1, 2013 4:26 AM

    Ramcountry your wrong, Givens n JJ were never suspended by the league. They got benched for a game by the coach, nothing to do with the league. Pead n Rok were suspended by the league. So that 2 out of the draft class.
    Still the best draft we had in a long time.

  32. germanstingray says: Jun 1, 2013 8:32 AM

    He Pead the bed.
